Ceremonies performed: Weddings, Funerals

After a long career in broadcasting, becoming a Humanist Celebrant felt like a natural step. I am obviously used to public speaking, writing scripts and meeting so many different people, but helping someone through the best and worst days of their lives is such a privilege. No two days are ever the same in this job, and having lost both my parents many years ago, it was incredibly important to me that their own unique personalities and stories were told at their funerals, not only that, but it gave everyone a chance to smile, as well as shed a tear. I’ve lived in Glasgow all my life, and my three children are no longer children! They’ve all grown up and flown the nest, so it was the perfect time to become a celebrant. I'm blown away by the generosity and genuine care shown to me by my fellow HSS colleagues, I am now part of a bigger family, a world away from television, and it feels great. ** PLEASE NOTE I ONLY COVER THE GLASGOW AREA**

Wedding & Civil Partnership Ceremonies

Having qualified as a registered wedding celebrant, the enquiries haven't stopped!
I am loving the diversity of stories, ideas, and venues and as I meet each couple, planning their big day together with them, is such an honour. I like to be well organised, so if you're not very good at communicating, or are very disorganised, perhaps I am not the celebrant for you! I will ask you to give me lots of information, to be sure of creating something unique and personal, a day you'll never forget, and we can then work on it together, until you're sure it's perfect for the two of you.
The wonderful thing about booking with HSS, is that all of our scripts are uploaded to the Cloud, so that in the unlikely event of illness or circumstance (we're only human!) we guarantee to have the agreed ceremony delivered by another of our other celebrants, and will never let you down.
I'd prefer to work only one year in advance, to be sure of giving each couple their own unique ceremony, without taking on too many bookings at a time, however I'm happy to pencil dates beyond that, so do get in touch. (*please note I work in and around the Glasgow area only)
I've been married for 33years, and although I didn't know about HSS back then, we still did it our way, and made it very special. Thank you so much to all those who have entrusted the most important day of their lives so far, to me, it's going to be fantastic!

Funeral Ceremonies

Organising a funeral is one of THE most stressful times in your life, and it's incredibly important that the life story of your loved one is told with compassion, warmth and love. So often people say "I never knew that about him/her" afterwards, and that's why humanist ceremonies are so increasingly popular. It's a celebration of life, all centred around your loved one, not about anyone or anything else. I spend around 2hrs with the family, in their home, and from that, we work together to create a unique, personal and fitting tribute. I also give the family a presentation copy of the service, to keep and read in years to come, when things are a little less raw
